    More fermented cod liver oil and bulk pantry items… baby is on the way so this would be such a great help!

    I adore my Kindle e-ink reader. I don’t see the point in the Kindle Fires. If I wanted a tablet, I’d buy an actual tablet that would let me buy and upload any app from the Google Play or Apple stores. It’d be cheaper and have more versatility (and could even run a Kindle app!). But I *highly* recommend the e-ink and paperwhite Kindles! It really is as good as reading a book (no glare), and is so much easier on the eyes. Plus the battery life is good for 30 days (if you’re doing 45 min or so a day of reading). Linda O Cummins

  3. Janice Straight via Facebook says

    I would buy “Wild Fermentation” by Sandor Katz and a VitaClay crock pot. Then I would pick a kitchen aid mixer and a food processor to round out my kitchen goodies.

  4. Sara Carver Fridsma via Facebook says

    A dehydrator! And of course various foods/supplements (red raspberry leaf tea in bulk, cod liver oil, gelatin, etc). And whatever it takes to replace the last little bit of plastic in my kitchen. :)

  5. Lauren Mizic via Facebook says

    A walker for my neice with cerebral palsy and everything i have saved to make, can and store what i want towards healthy eating. Oh, and a dehydrator!

  6. Tiffany Greene Elliott via Facebook says

    I would order my son a bed and a vitamix, if there is any leftover I would save it for gifts!! Thanks so much for the opportunity to win!! <3

  7. Jamesand Tracy Dear via Facebook says

    I have a huge wishlist and I would just skim off the first $500!! Thanks for the opportunity!

  8. Morgan Shimp via Facebook says

    Oh with Amazon it’s endless the possibilities!! I would buy books and a food processor and maybe a nice gift for my fabulous husband and kiddos!

  9. Di Loosley says

    Would love to update some of my kitchenware and some new exciting books on my wish list. Not to mention a couple of gifts for family and friends! Fingers crossed;~)

  10. Tylee Frazer via Facebook says

    Books! I would get some more books by Geneen Roth (Women, Food, and God) and The Body Book by Cameron Diaz. Kindles are nice, but there’s nothing like holding a book I’d also finally get a juicer and look for Lincoln logs for my daughter ( can’t find them in stores around here)

  11. Dogwood Penworthy via Facebook says

    With the 9 of us, FCLO is quite a drain on our budget so I’d stock up on that for sure and get a few products I’ve been wanting to use in DIY personal care products to finally get rid of the last ones that we still are using. I’d love some essential oil diffusers and air purifying products also and I’d look into water purification products as well. You know…..it’s just like If You Give a Mouse a Cookie. Thanks for the great giveaway!

  12. Julie says

    Is it wrong to have 11 pages of a wish list on Amazon? Most of it is natural food items sold by the case, things like grass fed ghee or coconut milk.

  13. Elizabeth says

    If I win this giveaway, I will use the gift card to buy some really special things for my mum, who really deserves a treat!

    Thanks for the opportunity. peace.

  14. Roseann Fiore via Facebook says

    I need so much and would stock my shelves, then a food processor or a good blender, and the cookbooks I haven’t been able to afford. Probably a gift or two for my grandkids, too.

  15. Nicole Sudhoff via Facebook says

    Healthy food and supplements, real food kitchen tools like a dehydrator, a big food processor, maybe a super good blender…

  16. Sarah Auzina says

    Thanks for hosting this very nice giveaway! Fingers crossed I win, I’d really like a dehydrator, dehydrating things one toaster-oven at a time gets old quick! :)

  17. Angel Holcomb via Facebook says

    Some new kitchen gadgets for my hubby who cooks every meal and save some for Christmas gifts 2014! Thanks !

  18. Anna Williamson via Facebook says

    my priorities change from day to day, but an EO diffuser and more EOs are sticking at the top of the list!

  19. Jennifer Grandt via Facebook says

    oooooh, I’m in need of toothpaste making supplies, a convertible car seat, and a crib mattress. This would be sooo helpful!

  20. Judy Gieselberg via Facebook says

    Maybe a pressure cooker and canning jars and ?, I really don’t know for sure. I do know that it will burn a hole in my pocket until I would use it. LOL

  21. Robin Matthews Sturm via Facebook says

    ooooo so many ideas! I’d start with a Blendtec and add a food dehydrator from there…

  22. Margie Cummings via Facebook says

    Ceramic non-stick cookware and Organic Beef & GF foods to pump up the Iron my 93 year old mom needs! Thanks for all your info!

  23. Jennifer says

    I would LOVE a kitchen aid mixer, a good processor so that I can chop veggies when holding my baby, a le creuset dutch oven or other similar cook/bake/serve/store container.

  24. Amy Heffernan says

    Great giveaway! Thank you! I think I would buy things for my children if I won this. Easter is coming up and my oldest really wants a tablet and my youngest a scooter. You can get both these here on amazon. Thank you!

  25. Mari Morgan via Facebook says

    I too have a very long list, but probably a Blendtec blender would be tops! Or maybe spend a little less and go for the Oster Versa blender so I could add a dehydrator

  26. Brittany Hughes Ardito via Facebook says

    I would use this for Biokult probiotics and many other foods and supplements that I buy via Amazon.

  27. Lori Stevens-Nicholas via Facebook says

    i have a new baby coming in Aug, and since I thought we were done having kids I sold everything last summer from our 1st 3. I would buy all new baby things!!

  28. Jennifer says

    Thanks for the great offer! I would buy a surgical stainless Steele cookware set, a rice cooker, and some books–all on my Amazon wish list.

  29. Ros says

    Need a new crockpot, skillet, glass baking pan, pantry items and supplements. Everything died at the same time-makes it hard to replace all at once!

  30. Michelle says

    It would be in honor to win this giveaway I did every thing you need me too do I always wanted in amazon card thank you for this giveAway

  31. Eseibi says

    I would love to buy a new pair of headphones because mine is broken and the travel to university is pretty boring without music in the morning. Also I like a juicer because we’re trying to eat healthier and that would help my family to make smoothies 😀

  32. Julie Donini says

    I’d buy some vintage cotton Indian saris and make them into baby wrap carriers, thereby starting a small business. I want people to wear their babies.

  33. Tasha says

    Fingers crossed! I would get the expensive superfood stuff that I can only afford every now and then, especially because I’m in Canada, and the price of these items are even that much more. For example 1 can of Great Lakes Gelatin is $40+.

    Thanks for doing this,


  34. says

    I would buy several items. First, I would get a new set of pots and pans… my others are on their last leg. With the remainder of the Gift Card, I would put it towards a Kindle Fire HD. Thanks for the chance.

  35. mik says

    What a terrific prize! I found your website while searching for some ‘real-food’ recipes…and I’m so happy to have come here. You have one of the best food/health sites I’ve come across. If I won this contest, I would (finally) buy a juice I’ve been eyeing and a slow cooker and, if there’s anything left, some food and books. Oh the possibilities! Good luck to all!

  36. Ann says

    Thanks for offering the hope of winning. I’ve been wanting the Excalibur Dehydrator for so long; next would be many organic foods, and so many items our local stores don’t offer. Also, I would love to get a new mixer. I can’t believe how many things you can get at Amazon…mind boggling.

  37. Terri says

    What a great giveaway! I would have a hard time choosing from my list but I think probably some Berkey filters and a VitaMix!

  38. Maria says

    Thank you for this chance! I’m a bibliophile with 500+ books on my Amazon wishlist and it keeps growing. I take out about 20 books from the public library a month and wishlist the ones I NEED to have in my own personal library. So books for me!
